For anyone who likes Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas line up, the final night is always a bittersweet one; this title is Hallmark Channel’s final premiere of the 2015 season. The script follows Jules Cooper (Nikki DeLoach), a New York City girl who inherits her grandmother’s “Christmas Land,” a holiday-themed family tourist spot that continues to bring joy to many. Gone since she was a child – without any recent visits, Jules decides to visit her property with plans to do nothing more than sell.
When she arrives at Christmas Land, it’s to see the place is closed, but memories remind her why it’s special. She also meets the attorney for the estate Tucker (Luke Macfarlane). As he shows Jules around her childhood fantasy land, the two of them begin to set plans in motion for how best to reimagine and recapture the magic that is Christmas Land…
Christmas Land (2015) Hallmark Christmas Movie Review
If there has to be a final film in this year’s series, this isn’t an unpleasant way to close out the year’s line-up. Christmas Land is full of charm and seasonal magic. The setting “ups” the sense of “magic” as does the winter scenes which sells the festive atmosphere of the story. The cast does a nice job with their respective parts as well. As is a habit with several of Hallmark’s productions, the familiar face of Luke will be recognized by Hallmark viewers; including from The Memory Book.
